Germany: Promoting Falun Gong at Titisee

On Saturday June 27, 2009, Falun Gong practitioners once again travelled to Titisee, the famous tourist destination in the Black Forest scenic area, to hold an information day. They introduced Falun Gong to tourists from all over the world, and also exposed the Chinese Communist Party's (CCP) brutal persecution of Falun Gong practitioners in China.

The practitioners' booth was set up near the entrance of the Titisee scenic site. Tourists from all over the world passed by the booth. The information on the poster boards caught people's attention and many paused to stop and read. Some of them signed the petition to support the practitioners' efforts to end the persecution.

An older couple stayed for a long time in front of the information board, reading it carefully. Then they came up to the information desk to ask for more information. A practitioner told them in detail about the CCP's ten-year persecution in China. They were told about the CCP's torture of Falun Gong practitioners and the atrocities of organ harvesting from living Falun Gong practitioners for lucrative profit. The couple listened quietly, and then signed their names on the petition form. Shortly after they left, they returned to request more informational materials and asked where they could learn Falun Gong. Then they immediately went to the restaurant nearby, telling the diners there about the persecution of Falun Gong.

Four Chinese students passed by the desk. One of them saw the information panel and said to the others, "Look! Falun Gong!" However, when the practitioners approached them, they left in a hurry. After they went sightseeing and returned. They passed by the desk again. This time, a German professor was walking with them. The practitioners talked with them, and learned that the students had just come from China to study in Germany. When the subject turned to quitting the CCP and its affiliated organisations, they said that they already knew about the trend of quitting the CCP, as they often received emails about it.

Many people who came to the desk were very appreciative of the paper lotus flowers made by the practitioners, as the practitioners explained that the lotus symbolises purity, rising out from silt without being contaminated. A mother and her children liked the lotus flowers so much that they each learned how to make them.
